clinton suggested that the consulate attack in benghazi involved the al-qaeda affiliate in north africa it was like will goly the work of the terrorist group. that admission led to many questions what took the administration so long with john mccain and lindsay graham issuing this statement. we recognize that al-qaeda involvement in the terrorist attack that killed four americans is an inconvenient truth for a president that claims to be destroying al-qaeda. but it's not too much to ask why the administration has taken so long to state what appeared obvious on what really happened on september 11th, 2012. we're a back with our panel. so given all that we've learned in the last couple of weeks. how big a security failure was that attack on the consulate? >> it was far bigger than this administration is willing to admit. we knew the security situation in benghazi was getting out of control. there were attack on the british consulate which was closed and there with a attacks on convoy and attacks on the u.s. consulate, too. there were reports out of benghazi. u.s. issued a statement in aug
is rumored to be the president's choice to be hillary clinton's replacement. all 18 members of which, republicans and democrats, have signed a letter acceptability to the administration asking for a full accounting of the benghazi terrorist attacks and the events in yemen and egypt. the white house continues to give every appearance of stone walling, both the congress and the press. almost three weeks have passed since those attacks, and leaked from within the white house, an intelligence community suggests the obama administration has been involved in an outright cover up. there are reports tonight that officials within the administration were concerned from the very beginning about the message the white house chose to push after the attack. the attack that was spontaneous they said, and not at all the work of terrorists. here's white house spokesman jay carney back on the 14th of september. >> the incident in benghazi, as well as elsewhere, but these are all being investigated, what i'm saying is that we have no evidence at this time to suggest otherwise, that there was a preplanne
public. defense secretary, leon panetta, secretary of state hillary clinton now conceding it was an act of terror. still no word, no correction from the man who steered the false narrative, president obama himself. we take up all of this here tonight with the republican strategist who served in the bush white house, and also, negative economic reports having little effect on the market today. lou joins us as does the head of the catholic league, bill donohue on where the obama administration funds anti-christian art, if you can call it art, and the fight with planned parenthood. we begin with the obama administration still trying to put forward a narrative that matches facts. terrorism is a foreign word for this administration whose lack of transparency is further qomp kateed by a complete lack of security in the consulate in an unstable, violent, muslim nation. we have the latest in this live report. katherine? >> well, thank you, lou. associate for the director of national intelligence issued a statement that seemed to give cover to the administration while at the same time acknowledg
hillary clinton stepped off that narrative herself. when she was at the united nations, also said that they knew that al-qaeda had been active in the arabian peninsula. it seems to me that the secretary of state is distancing herself from the white house was saying because if it comes out later in an investigation that the white house or ambassador rice was withholding information about what happened when they knew it there is going to be a problem for this administration. >> paul: just to be clear here. ambassador rice reports to hillary clinton. she is technically part of the state department operations. she made the most clear statements about the association with the video and refused to acknowledge whether or not it was a terrorist attack? >> we don't know who was calling the shots. we do know what they were saying breaks into two separate parts. what they've been saying now suggests they did know early on that al-qaeda was involved in that. i suspect that is probably one of the reasons ambassador stevens was getting active there. it was well known to people in libya that isl
clinton was accused to. >> brian: it was a bigger deal. i think they will focus on him. i don't think he has governed a black or white american. if nothing else unemployment in africa-american communities are through the roof. i thought allen west comments were insightful. he said i tell you first of all. i was born in raise in georgia. and i am sursurprised that the southern acent with the president raised hawaii. and hoe was able to do that. >> steve: and we'll have the story live. put down that remote. he will be up this hour. >> brian: another story . the department of justice denied that the suspected terrorist held in gitmowill be coming to the united states. the white house bypassed congress and spending money on a federal prison. it is it a back door move that could begin that process. joe, what do you think this is all about? >> first of all i will try to keep my acent one way through the whole thing. one thing, this thing is just another lawless act by our administration to circumvent congress and go around the american people. we fought this thing two years ago. and it was thr
. if they don't, then fine. that's what it is. he doesn't need to win like clinton and obama needed to win to validate themselves. >> all right. and now one of the classic awkward segues, talking about bacon. it's getting tougher and more expensive. we are talking about actual bacon here. not the figurative stuff we talk about in politics. u.s. has a looming pork shortage thanks to this summer's drought driving up the cost of feed to hogs and cut the number of pigs that farmers raise. next year, a 12% drop in pounds of bacon per american and the cost could rise by more than a dollar a pound and not stopping red blooded americans. >> i would pay double that for bacon. >> enjoy it when you can and the sausage and the pork chops. enjoy, you know, everything from the little piggy. >> price don't matter at my age. i'm 82 years old. i can have what i want. >> this is the michele obama nanny state plug. >> sure. someone is responsible for this. some democrat. i have already started to stockpile my bacon because life without bacon is not worth living. it's become part of my cultural existence. i t
assembly. in half an hour, mitt romney is that the clinton global initiative. after that, a discussion of relations between the u.s. and pakistan. >> watched and engage with c- span, including our live debate preview starting at 7:00. post-debate, your reaction and comments. follow our live coverage on c- span, c-span radio, and c- span.org. >> president obama's speech to the u.n. general assembly include comment on the video that sparked protests in the muslim world, iran's nuclear program, and violence in syria. this is half an hour. >> i have the honor to welcome to the united nations his excellency, barack obama, president of the united states of america. >> mr. president, mr. secretary general, fellow delegates, ladies and gentleman, i would like to begin today by telling you about an american named chris stevens. chris was born in a town called grass valley, california, the son of a lawyer and a musician. as a young man, chris joined the peace corps, and taught english in morocco. and he came to love and respect the people of north africa and the middle east. he would carry that
compliment from president clinton today. this time, though -- maybe not much help. >>> and it's been about 24 hours. and nfl fans are still outraged by a call made by a replacement ref in last night's packer-seahawks game. even scott walker pleads he wants the refs back. and hey, they're in a union! what will it take? let's go "outfront." ♪ >>> good evening, everyone, i'm erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, obama vows he'll get the killers. today the president spent 24 minutes of his half-hour speech to the united nations talking about libya, the middle east and ambassador chris stevens. the speech, which was seen by american voters and viewers around the world, mentioned stevens 12 times. as the president paid tribute to him right from the start. >> chris stevens loved his work. he took pride in the country he served, and he saw dignity in the people that he met. and two weeks ago, he traveled to benghazi to review plans to establish a new cultural center and modernize a hospital. that's when america's compound came under attack. >> that's the first we learned about exactly what stevens was
in benghazi? that's what happened, according to house republicans in a letter sent to secretary clinton today. one of the authors of the letter, representative darrell issa comes "outfront." >>> plus, we're 24 hours away from the first presidential debate. what are they going to say? we've got advisers to both of them. mitt and barack "outfront" tonight. and how a lot of money is riding on tomorrow's debate. a lot. let's go "outfront." >>> good evening, everyone, i'm erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, warning signs missed? that's what the republican head of the house oversight committee is charging tonight in the lead up to the u.s. ambassador's death in libya. he's calling for congress to return for a special hearing next week. it was a three-page letter and in it, darrell issa listed 13 security incidents and threats in libya in the past six months. including in june, a pro gadhafi facebook page mentioned his running habits. the posting directed a threat against stevens. issa says stevens stopped his morning runs for about a week and then resumed them. in june, an ied was successfully placed
. bill clinton had two. but there could be a bunch in a hurry. justice ginsburg is the most likely to leave. and if president obama wins, that wouldn't change the balance of five republicans and four democrats. but if the five-to-four balance shifts, you could see dramatic dramatic changes in the court. it all depends on who leaves. >> do you simply assume president obama would name someone like sonja sot ma yor or clarence thomas for that matter? can you just assume those would be the possibilities, the probabilities if you will? >> that is precisely what i would assume. you know, there's a mythology about the court that presidents often are surprised by how their justices turn out. but you know, that is very much the exception rather than the rule. if you look at the justices currently on the court right now, every single one of them has turned out more or less as predicted. sure there are individual cases, there are surprises. i certainly was surprised by chief justice roberts' vote in the affordable care act case. but by and large presidents what you see is what you get. and wh
president was down nine points in mid-september and was tied with bill clinton by the end of october. the clinton eventually won. former clinton pollster is questioning the assumptions being made in today's polls. >> these polls are assuming that you have the same high level of african-american, latino and young people vote in 2012 that you had in 2008. >> obama campaign senior advisor david axelrod said they widely vary so when they all pointed in one direction, they are all wrong. but we are planning for a close race as we always have. another democratic strategist offered this assessment. >> the race isn't over. this can move back three or four times between now and november 6th. >> romney you try to create that momentum. >> of the eight presidential races where the leads were cut or flipped by the opponent, average of comebacks was roughly 35% and in some cases it was the debate that moved the needle. >> gregg: as a reminder we are daig days away from that first presidential debate. we'll have live coverage of the event hosted by megyn kelly and bret baier. that is coming up righ
the trial and you remember the chief justice rehnquist presiding over the impeachment trial of bill clinton. but with the chief justice will is and how the chief justice is to be appointed in the federal circuit court of course the appeal if you become the chief judge by seniority so maybe what have come become the justice by seniority but no, president george washington thought otherwise and actually nominated a chief justice in that case and by separate commission, so that established the pattern some nominated to be the chief justice through the ranks. beyond that, how the court of reeds and what it conceives of as it's a distraction. many high courts around the world can give what we would call advisory opinions to the executive branch of their government or the legislative branch can say that, you know, if we get such and such would it pass muster and we say yes or no and if the answer is no they go back and redo it and bring it back again and it works that way. our core to very early on established it wouldn't wish you advisory opinions that there had to be an actual case or controver
at the clinton global initiative. paul ryan finds an employee's union he can actually support. starting with the president. after the death of chris stevens. the anti-muslim video that provoked the protests while defending the right to free speech. >> obama: americans have fought and died around the globe to protect the right of all people to express their views. even views we profoundly disagree with. and on this, we must agree there is no speech that justifies mindless violence. there are no words that excuse the killing of innocents. there's no video that justifies an attack on an embassy. >> eliot: the president warned iran that while it still had time to demonstrate its nuclear program was peaceful, that time was not unlimited. >> obama: make no mistake a nuclear armed iran is not a challenge that can be contained and that's why the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> eliot: the president also spoke out against human trafficking in a speech at the clinton global i
as condescending. back when he told hillary clinton that she was likable enough, remember in 2008 during their debate? he's reportedly been practicing some zingers to use against the president. and while powerful sound bites get lots of plays in the days after the debate, remember where the beef commercial, stuff like that. it's questionable if a few good one-liners will be enough to put mitt romney in the white house. here's the question, what can mitt romney do to win the first debate? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile and post a blog or go to "the situation room" facebook page. >>> president obama's court looks different than it was when he was elected with two new justices he nominated. how could it change in four more years if he is re-elected? joe johns has been looking at this story. yesterday, joe, you did a whole piece on how the supreme court might be affected if mitt romney were elected. today you're looking at how the supreme court could be elected if the president is re-elected. >> right, wolf. if the president is re-elected we already have a pretty good road map to the kind of per
the middle class is the result of policies that romney and ryan are supporting. in clinton, iowa, vice presidential nominee paul ryan said a romney administration would help more americans find jobs. >> we have a jobs crisis in america. wouldn't it be nice to have a job creator in the white house? ( applause ) we can't afford four more years. we need a real recovery. take a look at just jobs. we lost 582,000 manufacturing jobs since the president took office. he's offering a new tax increase on our job creators that will cost us 700,000 jobs. we're offering really forms. >> ifill: which candidate has the better plan to get the economy back on track? that's the key question in battleground states like north carolina, which only months ago seemed out of reach for the democrats this year. but it's back in play again. jeffrey brown traveled there to discover why. >> lead the way. brown: 26-year-old dewayne owens who served in the marines and is now a professional mixeded marshal artist usually takes on tougher opponents than your correspondent. >> i see. brown: but this weekend on a break
of state hillary clinton one on one, during which he was expected to make his case for military action to stop iran from developing its nuclear program. he used a line drawing the bomb to make the same case at the u.n. >> a red line should be drawn right here. before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> netanyahu said iran will back down if the world draws that clear red line. but he warned that it will have enough enriched uranium to make a nuclear bomb by next summer. that's what they're saying. netanyahu believes we're about six months away from them having enough enriched uranium to make a bomb. >> i think many people are hoping military action is not necessary. >> of course. >> of course. and we know now that israel's foreign ministry called for another round of sanctions against iran because the sanctions that have been put in place have been somewhat successful -- >> right. >> -- i think. you know, at least people are saying that. but i just wonder if the united states, this time of year, an election year, i
cost clinton the white house. are we going to re-elect a budget who was not honest with us? this is not just a mistake or that they did not have the information. we are getting evidence that they did know and they still continued the story about the film being the basis of the situation. that is a dangerous place for every american to be when we cannot trust our own government. >>neil: we will get a different reason from a democratic strategist who know as lot about how this sorts out in that sense. joe, to the gore's point that this could be a festering crisis, how the administration responded to this crisis and how forthcoming it was. what did you think? >>guest: well, it is way too early to throw around words like "why" and "coverup." the fact that john kerry, a democrat, is asking for answers, there will be a bipartisan look at exactly what happened here. for five days --. >>neil: what do you make of the fact that john kerry, a guy who could be a front runner for the secretary of state position, when hillary clinton leaves, he is doing this? that is unusual, isn't it? >

[video clip] >> the program identifies the barriers to trade and entrepreneurialism in developing nations, and in exchange we are opening their markets to investment and trade. they will receive assistance package is focused on developing rule of liberty, law, and property rights. we will focus our efforts on small and medium-sized businesses. micro finance has been annexed -- a focused tool, but we need to expand to businesses that are too large for micro finance and to small for traditional banking. the aim of a much larger share of our aid must be the promotion of work and the fostering of free enterprise. >> one more front page before we get to your calls. here is a shot of former president bill clinton and governor romney at the event in new york after the introduction. they make the point in the cut line that both romney and president obama addressed the conference, but avoided directly attacking each other. more from the papers and the speeches, but we want to hear from you now. angelica, republican line. caller: i am in full support of
was not the case at all. where is the dni, where is hillary clinton on this. wrist the president announcing how the investigation is going. >> first of all there is a investigation. the president doesn't report to the american people if we don't have all the facts. martha: report to the american people isn't he elected by the people. martha: go, alan, yes. >> the president is not going to report to the american people until we have all the facts, and unlike mitt romney who jumped to conclusions i think it would be wrapping for the administration or the t-t to jump to conclusions before we know everything. he's been very tough on al-qaida, you can't blame him he's had a great record on going after al-qaida lead tkerts not just osama bin laden you but he's killed almost all the top al-qaida al-qaida guys. martha: there are some alive and well and alive in benghazi. we have to call it what we is and we have to reb nice what happened on the ground there and address it and the president is in a position to talk to us about it. >> we have to get all the facts first. martha: gretchen your turn. >> the
to washington. and right after that briefing thursday by the secretary of state clinton and the director of national intelligence, lawmakers said there were not a lot of specifics. >> they did give some information but said that nothing that they said could be talked about outside. so, um, i guess i didn't learn anything. it's nice to see you all, but there's not really much to say. >> i think it was, you know, pretty straightforward. >> they're still piecing together, obviously, still trying to figure out who perpetrated the attack, how to capture them, how to find those people, how to prevent future attacks. >> reporter: and today two senior republicans on the senate foreign relations committee, senators corker and isakson, asking for all those communications, so that would include e-mail and cables relating to the security situation in benghazi between the u.s. mission in libya and the state department leading up to that attack. quote: we must insist on more timely information regarding the attacks and the events leading up to those attacks. and there is yet a third letter from senior
their minds than we think. the democratic convention moved the needle in this race because bill clinton went out for 45 minutes and made a case on substance largely against mitt romney and he made it. and romney's 47% remark moved the needle. there is a narrow lead for president obama. so romney needs to make the case affirmatively for his program and why it's better than the president's. this is not just a referendum. this was the romney theory going in. he needs to prove that he's a better choice for the next four years. >> people are still persuadable. 15% is a pretty big number. if you look at undecided voters in most polls it's around 6%. but rich is right. people will pay attention to this and they will look for something maybe to make them change their minds for people who aren't completely thrilled about their choice which actually i think in both parties it's most people. most people aren't that excited about their choice. but it's mostly the independent voters they will have to focus on. bill: you make the case this debate is really for them. the persuadables. >> it's not just for
be smelling the same stink, because they're demanding that the secretary of state, hillary clinton, release ambassador stevens' diplomatic cables. a few short blocks away from the u.n. where the president continued to condemn this youtube trailer, we're awaiting this week the return of the biggest piece of trash disgilessed as so-called art, a crucifix in the artist's urine. we heard nothing about this. joining me with reaction, our former new hampshire governor, one-man romney wrecking crew john sununu along with fox contributor john trippi. has anybody drawn more attention to this video that was so amateurishly put together than the president of the united states? why does he continue to obsess about this? he didn't o obsess. he said that the video was wrong and bad. and it was. i disagree with you, sean. he mentioned that we shouldn't -- you know, freedom of speech is important, but you -- >> bill: joe, he's been saying this from the beginning. it's the video, it's the video. >> no. >> bill: wait a minute. he sent susan rice out there, jay carney. sent them out there for days telling the
